Stylish Steals: 9 jewelry pieces to buy to upgrade your summer drip
Even the most fashion-conscious sometimes view jewelry as an afterthought or something you wear 24/7, like tiny hoops and nameplate necklaces. Our jewelry stands often only consist of special occasion, costume-y options or, on the other end of the spectrum, everyday dainty pieces. But it’s time to rethink that and bulk up on more trend-driven necklaces, bracelets, and earrings—without spending a lot of money.
This summer has already been a strong season for accessories, with heart-shaped sunglasses and funky visors as quirky trend revivals. Jewelry had some trending styles as well, in the form of inedible fruits hung from your earlobes. But some trends this summer are destined to be classic and worn for seasons to come. They will, if anything, help you revive your end-of-summer look and make that black sundress you wear three times a week feel new. Check out these under $60 options below.
1 Turquoise Touches
Turquoise is back in more delicate ways, rather than big statement pieces. Paired with gold instead of its usual pal silver, this spike necklace feels light and summery.
2 Pretty Pearls
If a single pearl strand still feels too stuffy or pearl earrings feel too preppy, put the pearls in your hair. The clip shape feels trendier than a barrette.
3 Statement Hoops
Large hoops already attract attention. The addition of some bold chiffon petals gives you a show stopper.
4 Cool Coins
Medallion pendants have been around for a season or two, and they aren’t going anywhere. Layer these with other thin necklaces in matching metal.
5 Colorful Crystals
Jewelry brands are having a ball with rainbow-colored baguettes. They are replacing plain crystals on dangly earrings and slim tennis bracelets. Have fun stacking this technicolor ring in with your solid gold bands.
6 Chunky Chains
All sorts of chains are vying to get on our necks, but this choker length is the one we plan on rocking. The combination of three different styles of links makes this necklace extra special.
7 Shell Jewelry
Shells are having a blast this summer away from the sand and hanging on our ears, necks, and arms. Keep the beach vibes going as long as you can by adding these pukas in with your bangles and string bracelets.
Dress up your ankles while they still get to see the light of day and aren’t hidden by socks. The floral beaded single strand only solidifies this throwback.
This lovely shape is having a moment. In tortoise, it feels lets quirky and not something you’d only wear on February 14th.
